The Social Club Rules

Postby Glenn » Fri Sep 09, 2005 8:53 pm

These guidelines (still under construction) are in place to protect the interest of the site. Deviation from these rules may expose the site to unwanted attention which might lead to its closure. (It is alleged that this is what caused the downfall of shirtlessafl.com) Happy to hear other suggestions.

Note - Due to an increase of SPAM membership I have changed the registration process so it requires admin approval. Apologies to genuine people but you will have to wait till we approve you before you can post.


Posting Behaviour:
'Trash Talking' and 'Flaming' Will Not Be Tolerated
Posting topics, polls and replies attacking other members isn't constructive, so we ask that you refrain from 'trash talking' and 'flaming'. If you disagree with something someone says, feel free to constructively criticise, but personal attacks and hate messages are not acceptable. Get your point across without upsetting anyone.

Adding Pictures:
Only link pictures relevant to your post. Not just a mug shot. Oversized images will be resized down. Remember you can post all the pictures you like in the player pix gallery. http://playerpix.gayfooty.com.au

Adding Pictures of Players:
Pictures of players taken in the change rooms/showers without the knowledge of the player are not to be posted in the Social Club or anywhere on the GayFooty site.

Linking to Sites:
Putting links in your profile other than a link to your Gaydar profile is not allowed. Links in messages to sites that don't have anything to do with the subject / forum will be removed.

Keep the focus:
Comments outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved, locked or simply be deleted.

For Ever After:
Don't post something that you won't be happy to remain on the internet forever. Once your "Edit" time has elapsed you won't be able to delete or change it. As long as it does not breach any of the other rules mentioned here the post will stay there for a very long time.

Advertising:
Do not spam. No blatant advertising. We will put up paying adverts. With an expected 2 million page loads this year, at only $250 a year, it is great value.

Illegal Content:
No warez, cracks, serials or illegally obtained copyrighted content! Links to content of a questionable nature, asking for, offering, or asking for help/helping to process such content in any way or form is not tolerated.

Formatting messages:
Don't use all caps in your post or special characters to draw attention. Capitalising a word or three to emphasise it is fine.

Majority of your post should be of the size “Normal” and “Huge” should really never be used.

Not adding to discussion:
Don't post just to increase your number of posts. If you have nothing to say on a certain matter then don't post. Do not say “Well done” or “I agree” without further comment. These posts will be deleted with out fail.

User Names:
User Names which are offensive or which attack other GayFooty users are not allowed (as if we needed to tell you). They will be deleted. Names that are email address, websites, phone numbers, player names (or contain player names), famous peoples name or anything else that is identifiable will be asked to pick a new name and the admin will change the name. Failure to reply to this message will see the account deleted.

Moderation:
The moderating, support and other teams reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Team Members and not users.

Private Messages:
The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (as above) and/or the revocation of private messaging

Using the site for a personal agenda:
Please don't use this site to attract attention to a personal agenda that has nothing (or little) to do with football.

Language:
All post must be entirely written in English.

Placing links on other sites to GayFooty:
We love advertising the GayFooty brand, but, only in forums where it will be welcomed. Do not post a link in another forum without first checking that it is OK first. Drop Glenn a PM.

Warnings:
We have a 3 strikes and you are out rule. If you get a strike or two it will be indicated by your rank. Behave for an extended time and an administrator may drop you back a level. (From “Strike 2” to “Strike 1” or “Strike 1” to no strikes). If you get a 3rd strike you are out. Banned from the social club. No if’s or but’s. Gone!!!

Strikes are issued for minor offences. We do reserve the right to ban a user without warnings or explanation.

It is simple though... Follow the rules, play nice and you will have nothing to worry about.


Remember that we reserve the right to suspend or delete your account at any time and without notice.
